Facing Failure

I didn't write anything good today which made me feel like a bit of a failure. Some days are like that. I'm fairly rusty after not writing much for quite some time. I must be patient and keep practicing in the hopes that it will gradually come back.

Since I do want to post something every day for the challenge, I decided to post this lovely fall sky with an inspiring quote about failure on it instead. I feel like Thomas Edison as I look at my MS Word document full of ideas that went nowhere. Oh well! It happens.



Hopefully inspiration will return tomorrow as it wasn't around much today and my writing time is up for now.

I am writing a blog post a day for the NaMo challenge at YeahWrite for every day of November. http://yeahwrite.me/november-2015/

  1. Don't beat yourself up! This is about the exercise of writing. Of just doing it. Not everything will be perfect. You got this :)

  3. Sometimes it's just not there and that's ok. I like to go for a walk when that happens. A lot of times something will come.

    1. Thanks, Raj. Hopefully my rhyming muse will return along with my fiction muse. They're off partying somewhere.
